It’s all about partnership working!

In order to deliver such a wide variety of projects, it was important that the Ingleborough Dales Landscape Partnership involved as many people and organisations as possible to help make things happen.

As well as working with local community and voluntary groups, local schools, grant recipients and over a hundred supporters, the Landscape Partnership benefited from the expertise and dedicated support of it's board members. The Stories in Stone Lanscape Partnership Board met regularly throughout the scheme delivery to provide strategic direction in order to meet the requirements set at development.

The following partners had representatives on the board:
